Does it still happen for you, and in that case, can you please provide
an example?

Also, can you test if when launching aptitude, in Options menu, 'Install
recommended packages automatically' is disabled?  It might happen that
you have it enabled in ~/.aptitude/config (in the user or root account).

I haven't noticed this happening (I use this option myself most of the
time) and neither I have seen recent bug reports about the issue.
